SUPERjury - Spring 2014

Friday, May 9, 2014

Time: 9:00 am to 6:00 pm
Location: AUP Commons

SUPERjury fosters a merit-based competition in the school which provides an opportunity for the best students to be exposed to the larger architectural community.

Due to the diverse nature of the studios offered, the intention of the SUPERjury is for students and faculty to see the quality of work within each studio and thesis, as well as have an important dialogue on the architecture curriculum of the school in its entirety.

Jurors:

Donna Roberston was Dean of the College of Architecture at Illinois Institute of Technology from June 1996 to August 2012, and is now a Professor of Architecture at IIT. She teaches design studio and case study methodology. Her emphases at IIT are to update and invigorate the pedagogical and architectural heritage of the College, following an evolution from Mies Van der Rohe's administration of 1938 to 1958, but anticipating the imperatives of the 21st century.
